Carole Parkhouse: The first single I bought was The Onion Song by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. I thought it would cost 6s.8d but when I got to the shop they said prices had gone up and it was now 7s.1d. I had enough money if I didn't get the bus home, so I walked home with my record. That was Woolworths in Sutton. The first album I bought was Abbey Road by the Beatles and I think it cost about £2

Robert Bidwell: My first ever single was Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In by Fifth Dimension, bought from Woolies in Kingston Upon Thames in 1968. It cost 8s.6d (42p)! In my honest opinion, an even cooler tune today than it was back then. I still play it occasionally.
